Western Saddles Of Note
Below are just a few Western saddles with characteristics that make them stand out from the crowd.
- A trail riding saddle with a cowboy “look” to it.
Circle Y Walnut Grove has a definite cowboy “look” to it with a slick fork, floral tooling, and iron conchos featuring a bronc riding cowboy. Check out the Walnut Grove trail saddle here.
- A roomier trail saddle.
Many trail riding saddles have tall saddle horns and high cantles. The Tucker Cheyenne Frontier trail saddle, though, breaks the trend with a lower saddle horn and a lower cantle. This allows for a roomier feel in the seat, and the lower cantle is easier to swing a leg over, too. You can see the Cheyenne Frontier by Tucker here.
